3 month trip

Rated 4 out of 5
May 12, 2020

After a month long trial trip to Idaho in 2018 I took a 3 month trip to the Yukon and NorthWest Territories with my Sparrow Roofnest mounted on my 2007 Subaru Forester in 2019. The Sparrow was my sanctuary and never let me down whether I was at a Pilot Truck Stop or in the boonies in the Yukon. I set it up and took it down in pouring rain (British Columbia is green after all) as well as had strong winds in Tuktoyaktuk on the Beaufort Sea. If it had rained I would run over the outside of the tent with an absorbant towel to prevent any excess moisture for getting trapped before driving away I also learned to first pull the back of the tent down to get the moisture of the roof before tackling the front and get all the rain water from the top down my sleeves. Ventilation was of course excellent with the large openings on all 4 sides. I had plenty of light to read by and found the Sparrow spacious with room for my Kindle and such without worrying that I might roll on top of the gadgets. A waterproof shoe bag was a life saver to take my muddy shoes inside and not worry about getting my bed dirty. If you are wondering about getting one of these, do it, you will not regret it. Be prepared to answer lots of questions from other travelers. I did not notice a drop in MPG. My Subie clocked 11,500+ miles on the trip to Canada. I hope this Coronavirus thing will be over soon ( 2121?) because my Forester can not wait to step out again with it’s Roofnest on top. The Roofnest was nicknamed ‘Lunchbox’ by my neighbor . It took a few months to figure out it was a “lunchbox” for grizzlies with me as a snack inside. Saw many black bears and grizzlies but they left my Nest alone.

Love my sparrow after 4 years

Bought my sparrow several years ago. From week long stays in the Tetons to weekend dashes to the Dunes in Southern Colorado, our Roofnest makes camping efficient, convenient, and comfortable. The whole organization has been extremely supportive and helpful throughout the years. If I wasn’t still so happy with my original sparrow, I’d be looking at a new one. Worth every penny.


Easy to set up, fun to use.

Installation was straightforward and not hard. The tent is made with visibly high quality materials and the tent is sturdy and solid. I’m 6’ tall and so is my friend. We both fit comfortably inside with room for snacks and gear. I can’t wait to elevate (literally) my camping experiences this summer.

I was in the market for a hardshell rooftop tent and I chose roofnest because of their amazing customer service. They were so helpful in answering all of my questions before I purchased. Responses were within minutes and I cannot thank them enough.

Stop looking, this is the RTT for you!

You truly get what you pay for. The price on RTTs is hard to swallow. We shopped around and looked at cheaper tents, but kept coming back to Roofnest. They truly stand behind their product, and after owning one, we do too. We always hear other RTT owners complain about condensation issues or not staying warm. Our only complaint is we usually oversleep when camping because it’s so cozy inside.

Our new Sparrow Adventure XL is the culmination of many years of testing, learning, and perfecting our hard shell roof top tent design, now with the option to add crossbars to the top of the tent!

Now redesigned and expanded with more headroom, more storage options, and more compatibility with accessories means you can seriously level up your camping game. Bring your favorite cook stove, hang some string lights, and keep your portable speaker charged all weekend long.

Plus, the ability to add the included set of crossbars to the top of the tent means that you can carry anything you want in addition to your Roofnest! The crossbars can be easily added or removed and can support up to 100 lbs when the tent is closed (to operate the tent, only 40 lbs can be stored on top).

So what are you waiting for? Take flight in a Roofnest Sparrow Adventure XL.
